Jennifer Turley, Weber State University

Dr. Turley is Brady Distinguished Professor of nutrition and the online nutrition program director at Weber State University. She is also currently head of the Department of Health and Human Performance. She received her Ph.D. degree in nutritional science from the University of Texas at Austin and held a 4-year post-doctoral research fellowship at the National Cancer Institute in Frederick, Maryland. She has been actively involved in teaching, scholarship, and service at WSU for nearly 10 years. Dr. Turley's nutrition specialty areas are cancer and immunity. Her laboratory experiences centered on investigating vitamin E as an anti-cancer agent in human cancer cells and determining novel mechanisms of action for this essential nutrient. She is personally and professionally interested in nutrition and immunity, especially as it relates to food allergies and intolerances, as well as food system sustainability and the personal and environmental benefits of organic foods.

Joan Thompson, Weber State University

Dr. Thompson is Professor of Nutrition and the Director of the Nutrition Program at Weber State University, where she has been for 27 years. Because the Department of Nutrition is housed in the School of Health and Human Performance, Dr. Thompson has had the opportunity to reach out to young adults and share sound strategies for promoting lifelong good health. Many experiences that Dr. Thompson had during her undergraduate education at the University of California, Berkeley motivated her to pursue career opportunities in the clinical dietetics area. After completing a master's degree and a doctorate degree from the University of Arizona, and doing clinical nutrition research, she was convinced that preventive medicine and lifestyle management are among the keys to life-long health and happiness.

MindTap® is the digital learning solution that powers students from memorization to mastery. It gives you complete control of your course—to provide engaging content, to challenge every individual, and to build their confidence. Empower students to accelerate their progress with MindTap.

  • On-page glossary terms help students learn the unique nutrition terminology throughout each module and focus on learning concepts.
  • The integrated modular textbook and online MindTap provide an interactive, engaging learning experience. The seven modules include multiple layers of assessment to prepare students to demonstrate knowledge, apply the information, and master terminology. The automatically-graded assessments include homework questions, case studies, crossword puzzles, and exams.
  • Learning Goals frame each module at the beginning and end to emphasize the key concepts. In addition, Personal Improvement Goals demonstrate how students can apply the information to their own lives.
  • "T-Talk" lectures by author Jennifer Turley engage students and cover key concepts in each module (Five T-Talks per module).
  • "BioBeats" address major themes and organizing principles important to the study of nutrition. They often deal with the biological or chemical underpinnings of how our bodies work, how food becomes fuel, how one's genes affect one's health risks, and so on.
  • "Practices" throughout each module provide problem solving opportunities for students. These include Diet & Wellness Plus, data analysis, and demos.
  • "Quick Review" and "Take Ten Reflective Questions" reinforce key concepts at the end of each unit within a module.
